VMware will share EVO:Rack with Open Compute

downloadVMware has expanded on its ultra-converged hardware scheme EVO:RAIL, and its forthcoming big brother EVO:RACK which defines a data center design – and promised to share elements of EVO:RACK with the Open Compute Project. VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger promised to share features of the EVO:RACK specifications with the Open Compute Project, the industry grouping which was initiated by Facebook to create open source hardware specifications for data centers. This is something of a turnaround as Gelsinger has been critical of Open Compute in the past and VMware is keeping a tight grip on the specs for the small-scale OPEN:RAIL systems.
